It has been a bug since before the Pearl, actually. My 8700 did it, too.
For me, the Messenger trick only works sometimes. I have tried scrolling up to show that I see the message (and that sometimes works), closing all conversations, etc. Most of the time it doesn't solve the problem.
I really think it is Messenger that causes the problem everytime. But I am not completely sure.
